VIGILANTE consists of two major components: (1) the viewing image/gimballed instrumentation laboratory (VIGIL) - advanced infrared, visible, and ultraviolet sensors with appropriate optics and camera electronics; (2) the analog neural three- dimensional processing experiment (ANTE) - a massively parallel, neural network-based, high-speed processor. The powerful combination of VIGIL and ANTE will provide real-time target recognition/tracking capability suitable for ballistic missile defense organization (BMDO) applications as well as a host of other civil and military uses. In this paper, we describe VIGILANTE and its application to typical automatic target recognition (ATR) applications (e.g., aircraft/missile detection, classification, and tracking), this includes a discussion of the VIGILANTE architecture with its unusual blend of experimental 3D electronic circuitry, custom design and commercial parallel processing components, as well as VIGILANTE's ability to handle a wide variety of algorithms which make extensive use of convolutions and neural networks. Our paper also presents examples and numerical results.
